Joint pain, especially arthritis pain, can impact your mobility and quality of life. Joints allow for agility and flexibility in movement, but they are prone to wear, tear and degenerative disease. Our medical team at Hanowell Spine Clinic offers advanced options in arthritis and joint pain treatment at our clinic in Covington, GA, to help improve your mobility and manage discomfort.
Arthritis comes in many forms, with over a hundred different types of arthritis that cause joint inflammation and pain. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is more prevalent with aging. The CDC estimates that over 54 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with some level of arthritis each year, with over 15 million reporting severe joint pain.
Wear and tear on the knee, hip, spine and other joints are expected with aging. Injuries to joints can increase the risk of arthritis and other joint inflammation. Aging is a factor, resulting in more friction and less cartilage. Treatment can help minimize joint pain and increase mobility, slowing the degenerative process.
Reducing Joint Inflammation
One of the best ways to control joint pain caused by arthritis and degenerative conditions is to reduce inflammation. At Hanowell Spine Clinic, we offer steroid joint injections that offer pain relief for 3-4 months or more. Steroid injections can provide relief from arthritis or bursitis, which are common causes of joint pain. We also offer PRP injections that help improve joint healing and slow degeneration of tissue and cartilage.
